Gametech Bear to Release Accessory That Connects PSPgo to PS3 Controller

October 6, 2010Written by Zak Islam

One of the most useful PSPgo feature is arguably the ability to play PSP games with a PlayStation 3 controller. Accessory manufacturer Gametech Bear has gone one step further with a new useful accessory which sees Sony’s PSPgo connect to a PlayStation 3 controller.

The accessory maker is taking pre-orders for a PSPgo controller holder that physically links a PSPgo to a DualShock 3 controller. You’ll still have to utilize Bluetooth for a connection to transfer button presses to the game. The controller holder essentially holds both devices in place. Gametech will be using an unused patent application filed by Sony which connects a regular PSP to a PS3 controller.

Gametech will be selling the controller holder in Japan by the end of this year for 2,980 yen ($36).
